Faralon, bound for the Dutch West Indies. The City of Honolulu, according to wireless reports, is still burning and about to ?ink. She is about 1,400 miles east of Honolulu and 670 miles southwest of San Pedro. The ?hip formerly was the German Iteamehip Friedrich der Grosse and was seized by the United States at the outbreak of the war. There were 73 passengers on board, ef whom ?r>fi were in the cabin, and 145 officers and members of the crew, and sll of tl'ese, Captain M. M. Walk, of ?the West Faralon, said were safe. The sea was reported to be smooth as glasi at the time, the passengers and crw took to tho boats and re? mained pn during the five hours or more that elapsed before the West Faralon arrived and picked them up. Army Transport to Bring Victims In The West Faralon was directed by '. wireless to stand by the City of Hono? lulu, which the skipper had reported ?was apparently doomed, until the ar- ! rival of the United .States army trans- ; port Thomas, which will bring the pas- ! sengers to San Francisco, permitting j the West Faralon to proceed. The ? f.rmy transport was steaming at top j tpeed. .ind was expected to reach the I stene before midnight. When reports through the Federal j ttltgraph and the Radio Corporation of j America were' pieced together they j ihowtd that the fire on the City of ? Honolulu was discovered at a little ! ttter 5 o'clock in the morning as the j f/??ms-hip was heading for its home i fort, at San Pedro, on the trip back j from its first round trip in the ! ?fewanan-Cal?fornia service. ! tesa than four hours after the fire j first was found the passengers and ! most of the crew were ordered to take j to the boats. These were lowered im- | medi.-.t.ely and life rafts were called | intri service for those of the crew who i could not be accommodated in the | bents. i Captain Harry R. Lester, radio opcr- ' stor; W. H. Bell, the chief engineer,! trtd First Officer William M. Brust re? gained on board to attempt to hold back the fire. At 10:10 o'clock they found their task hopeless, and they ?were driven by flames and smoke to take their places in the boats. Several Ships Race to Scene Wireless calls had been sent broad? cast and the Maison liner Enterprise, tho army transport Thomas, the West Faialon and other ships started on a race for the burning liner. It was about 3:30 o'clock when the Weft Faralon arrived and found the j City of Honolulu anillar of flame and : imoke. Standing off about a mile, the I West Faralon picked \\p the boats and j rafts and the .passengers and crew | were given accommodations and food j cboard the freighter. j Orders were flashed to the West j Faralon to try to get a line aboard j the City of Honolulu, but the fire was too hot to permit this approach with? out endangering the rescue ship and refugees. The coast, guard ordered the cutter Eiunvnec from San Francisco and the Ta m arpa from Los Angeles to proceed at full speed to the burning ship in ?il effort to salvage it. Reports from tho West Faralon had indicated there we? little hope of salvage, but the authorities decided to pass up no pos? sibility. oOfee mystery surrounds the origin \n the fire, but this may be due to the *eagerness of the dispatches received ty radio and perhaps can be fully ?eared up by the officers of the City '*f Honolulu when they reach land. Many of the passengers on the burned liner were from Pacific coast ?Hies and were returning from Ha ?a? One of the passengers was Roy . Crowder, general passenger agent 'or the line, who was making the round hip on the maiden voyage of the ship ?t this service. .

Once again a ship radio operator has lived up to the traditions of his craft. At It 12 p. m. to-day operator W. H. Bell, on the burn? ing steamer City of Honolulu, sent the fol lowing "last" message from the vessel: "Captain and gang leaving now. Goodby to you all." Ten minutes previously Bell had said that every one aboard but the captain, chief offjger, chief engineer and himself had left the boat. Fire then forced these offi? cials to take to the open sea.

Reiterates Opposition to Project in Ogdensburg, Center of Partisans for St. Lawrence Waterway Ignores Warning To Avoid Issue Means Millions Expended on Plan Not Yet Proved Practical, He Declares From a Staff Cnrrrspondent OGDENSBURG, N. Y., Oct. 12.?Gov? ernor Miller made the main topic of his speech here to-nipht. a forcible de? nunciation of the St. Lawrence ship canal project. In doing so, his friends , agreed, he displayed a rare brand of political courage, the kind of courage that does not shrink from facing a large number of friendly voters and telling them they are wrong on an is? sue of paramount local interest. The people of St. Lawrence County, a>nd particularly of Ogdensburg, are ?Strongly in favor of the ship canal / project. St. Lawrence County always has been one of the most stanchly Re? publican districts in the state, and has regul.' ly turned in most substantial major; :es for the party. In the face c,f this situation the Governor neither 'dodged nor quibbled. Nor did he pay the slightest attention to the prayers and petitions of the local loaders, who urged him to hide behind a smoke screen of generalities,, or to make his appeal to the pocketbooks of the hard? working people of the district by tilk ing economy, but by nil means to avoid coming to grins with the ship canal question, lest he endanger his party's supremacy in the county. Frankly Admits Hostility "According to my information, the one place in the State of New York where there is any public opinion in favor of the St. Lawrence ship canal is here," said the Governor in open? ing his attack. "I therefore take ad? vantage of this opportunity frankly to admit to the people of this locality that I have been, as strenuously as I could, opposing the propaganda for the con? struction of a deep sea ship canal. "Let my adversary, when he comes here next week, as frankly state what his position is, on this important sub? ject. You are entitled to know what I have done, and my reasons for it, and then it is for you to pass upon those reasons and that course ot conduct. "Since coming here my attention has been called to an item in a local news? paper saying that I will probably be asked to explain my attitude. I don't have to be asked to explain my atti? tude. I am not going around the state looking for votes. I am simply pre? senting to the electorate an account of my stewardship, and it is for them to aay whether they wi?h that sort of government continued or wish it changed." , As the Governor made clear his cate? gorical and unequivocal position in these words, an expectant stir ran through the house. All his auditors no doubt, well knew that he had con? sistently fought the ship ?anal plan, but obviously they had not expected him to fling the fact in their faces, so to speak, in this manner. Cites Vast Expense "I have opposed Uie attempt to com? mit this government to a vnst but un? known expenditure of ?he publi.: money for a project whose sommorcinl feasi? bility has not been demonstrated," con? tinued the Governor, "and I have frankly admitted that if its feasibility can be demonstrated the State of New York can have no legitimate opposition to it. 1 have opposed it, first, Vea use o? the insufficiency of '.he plans them? selves and of the estimates of cost. "A superficial plan of the work nec? essary to canalize the .St. Lawrence has been made, and an estimate cf $250, 000,000 offered, but competent cngin I eers admit that the studies for the plan j have been superficial, that the plan it J self is inadequate, and that tho esti? mate of cost is insufficient. No study whatever, and, no estimate, have been made to find out how much it would cost to deepen the channel? of the Great Lakes, to deepen the harbors of the Great Lakes, to build outer harbors wherever it has been favored to estab? lish seaports, to co-ordinate the i ail road terminal with ccean^ shipping which would be necessary. Confessedly that expense, of which no study what? ever has been made, would run into the hundreds of millions. Plan Yet Unproved "Second, I have opposed the project thus far upon the further ground that no study has yet been made, and no proof has yet been adduced, that it would be commercially feasible to es? tablish seaports in the Great Lakes and to divert ocean-going ships to the Great Lakes in sufficient volume to pay for the enormous expenditure required, and? no study has yet been made to show that it is commercially feasible, regardless of the expense, to build up the agencies necessary to handle world shipping for a waterway which neces saril t must be closed at least five months in the year, requiring a du (Continued on pa?? *hre?)

Oct. 12 (By Tho Associa ated Pr*.?s).?A clever Liberal car? toonist to-day depicts Premier Lloyd George jnakiu? a flight from Man? chester *f? a "now enginelcss glider," the discarded engine being the Con? servative party. This broadly repre? sents the present political situation, for, although Austen Chamberlain, Lord Birkenhead, the Earl of Balfourl ^ind other Conservative ministers are i still supporting the coalition, the bulk | of the Conservative party is believed | to be opposed to the continuance of) Lloyd George in the leadership and; anxious to get back the party system, ' An indication of the complete un-1 certainty of the whole position is seen | in the suggestion made to-day that Lloyd George will wait for the Chamberlain speech to-morrow before finally drafting his Manchester speech, because Mr. Chamberlain's speech will prove how fftr ha may count upon the firm support of the Conservative sec? tion of the ministry. Tho present belief is that both min? isters will devote themselves chiefly to a defense of the government's Near Eastern policy, and there are rumors that the Prime Minister may reveal some new facts in connection with this in further justification of the British policy.

When the British com I mander informed the Turkish com? mander that this was a violation of the armistice agreement the latter said he had not yet received- official notification of the armistice. He indicated, however, that orders would be given to his troops to retire as soon as .he received such notification. CONSTANTINOPLE, Oct. 12 (By The Associated Press). ? Four thousand Turks crossed the newly defined boundary at Airan, north of Darijeh, on the Ismid Peninsula, this morning and advanced some miles to Tcpeeuran. General Harington sent an airplane to warn the offending commander against trespassing on the neutral zone. The British general also telegraphed Ismet Pasha and Mustapha Kemal Pasha calling attention to this breach of the Mudania armistice convention. Plans for the Allied detachments to move into Thrace and occupy the ter? ritory in conformity with the armistice convention signed at Mudania were completed to-day. The force will com? prise three battalions of British troops, three of French and one of Italian, a total of 5,000 men. The detachments will leave Constantinople early next week. General Harington will press the Al? lied powers for an early convening of the peace conference, which he believes will be the most important council of world powers since Versailles. It is expected that the deliberations will re? quire from two to three months at least, as the questions for decision are of the widest importance, including the vital interests of all of Europe, and probably will involve many matters en? tirely outside the Near East. Allies Demand Neutral City The Allied authorities here will op? pose the selection of Smyrna or Con? stantinople for the conference. Major General Sir Frederick B. Maurice, dis? cussing this subject to-day, said: * "It is imperative that a -neutral city bo chosen. Smyrna and Constantinople are impossible oh account of the at? mosphere of hostility, intrigue, racial and religious animosities which would surround the delegates. Smyrna, with its background of fire, famine and fury, its air poisoned with undigested ha? treds, and the populace still delirious from the victories of the army, is wholly unsuited to attract the dove of peace. Constantinople, under the occu? pation of the Allied armies, is no neu? tral ground. Even Italy is inappro? priate, because Italy is a party to the negotiations and is technically one of the adversaries of Turkey." j The Allied representatives here prob? ably will suggest Berne, Zurich or Ge- j neva, all of them cities free from these objections and comparatively near at hand.

They are trying to decide whetheror not H. G. Wells's "Outline of History" is a fit book for college men to study. The theologists say it is not. The schoolmen defend the book, and Governor Alien, to whom tho ques? tion was referred, has checked it to the state Board of Administration. Following the adoption of the "Out? line" a3 a history text at the Nprmal School came letters from various parts of the state protesting against it and asking the Governor to have "the book, barred. Wells not only strikes at ?e ligion in the book, but it is not. proper from a moral viewpoint, the critics say. Furthermore, some have hinted that the British author has been too bold in stating the bare facts of his? tory. President Thomas W. Butcher of the ! Normal could not be coaxed into the controversy, but history teachers at the school rave reaffirmed their praise for the "Outline." W. W. Carothers, head of the educa? tion department, says those who con? demn Well3 also condemn Darwin's "Origin of the Species" and are not willing to face facts. "Wells whs chosen as a text because he comes nearer to setting down the things we propose to teach than does any other ^ author," says Carothers. "While he "may not be considered the best authority on geology or history, he gives the broader visions of those subjects and shows their interrela? tions. That is what this course also aims to give. 'The Outline of History' is supplemented by readings in other works." One hundred and seventy-five fresh? men are studying the book. They see no reason for the controversy. "It is the dryest book I ever tackled," one of them remarked. "I hope the Governor abolishes it." Hayes a Hero After Murder Charge Fails Schneider Recants Story of His Friend Killing Rector and Singer and Veteran Is Set Free Big Crowd Cheers His Return Home Baffled Officials Send for Coat Worn by Mrs. Hall Night of Tragedy By Boyden Sparkes NEW BRUNSWICK, N. J., Oct. 12.-~ Clifford Hayes, who left his home last Sunday a culprit in the clutch of County Detective Fcrd David, returned to-day exonerated of tho charge of murdering the Rev. Edward W. Hall and Mrs. Eleanor Milla. Departing from his home as a job? less youth, who sometimes satisfied a lust for adventure by toting a .22 caliber, single shot blank cartridge pistol, Cliff came back a ,45-calibor moving picture hero, a martyr, an ad? venturer, suitable material for public office and one whom 6th Ward mothers deRired their daughters to meet so? cially. And all this because Raymond Schneider lied about him and officers of the law professed to believe those lies. If there is a moral in it Cliff was as far from having discovered it to-night as his insanely happy collie pup, Rex, who was tied up in the back yard of 99 Richardson Street to keep him from under the milling foot of the callers passing before a reception line in the parlor where the post of honor was occupied by young Mr. Hayes, whose mother's kisses were being printed on his snub-nosed features whenever he lowered his guard to shake hands. Beats Return From War Cliff has a right to be puzzled. When he came home from the war?thirteen months in the navy?none but bis fath? er, mother and brothers even hinted that he was a hero. Demobilization meant a job cooking hamburger in an owl lunch-cart near the Pennsylvania Railroad station. Coming home to-dav from a cell in the Somerset Countj/ jail he rather hoped to sneak into the house and this is what happened: As the baby blue, roadster?it be? longs to his lawyers?turned tho cor? ner from Easton Avenue into Richard son Street, Cliff, crowded in betweer his sprucely-dressed lega\ advisers saw a crowd in front of his home Thero were more automobiles there than havo ever before been parked in the unpftved street of rather shflbbj little homes. Then there was a wild yell, the kind that makes ball players prize fighters and politicians happy and the din began to shape into words, "Welcome home! Oh, you Cliff!" Mostly that crowd contained kids, women, girls, but there were some men in it. One W3s Cliff's brother, Joe jr. The father was on the porch, and Mrs. Hayes?"Mom"?was trying to crawl over the hood of an auto that stood be 'tween her * and Clifford. Somebody kindly pushed him out of the automo? bile, shonk his hand so that the tears that had welled up in his-eyes began to roll down his cheeks, to be caught by the sharp lines made by his fixed grin. Dog Howls Welcome Photographers encircled him for a period of time which they regarded as a moment, but wTiich to Cliff and his mother was just a little short of ten thousand years, and then, giving over her attempt'to still the pounding of a weakened heart by holding her hands on the bosom of her bungalow apron, she smothered him. The crowd stopped yelling, and out in the back yard Rex began an excited barking that quickly became a frantic howl as his nose caught the scent for which it had 'been sniffing anxiously since last Sunday. Cliff hurdled the low chain that guards his mother's two square yards of an?mic front yard grass. His father embraced him and pulled him indoors, so that his mother, with a firm clutch on his coat, could cry out of sight of the neighbors, but the neighbors would not have it so and pushed right into the little house. There were pies and a steaming pot of coffee on the golden oak table in the Hining room, but Cliff was rot per? mitted to follow his eyes to the table. He was made to go out into the back? yard, which fell "in with the plans of the hysterical Rex. The photographers were out there, and Cliff, in his tweed, pinckback suit,, had to be photographed with his mother, with his father, with his .brother, with all three of them, with his lawyers, one on each side, with the dog and by himself.

Official announcement of the temporary post? ponement was made to-day at the Treasury immediately after it was stated that Mr. Mellon had rejected Commissioner Haynes's drastic ship seizure provisions in his draft of the regulations. The Treasury Secretary, it wag of? ficially announced, has drawn sharp lines with his dry chief and has re? fused to go further than authorize confiscation of liquor stores and im? position of fines for violations of the Attorney General's ruling. He would resort to seizure of ships only when flagrant violations of the prohibition act make criminal prosecution nec? essary. His decision on this question followed conferences with Secretary oi State Hughes on the international con? siderations involved. The official dis? closure of Secretary Mellon's stand is accepted as putting the final seal on the course to be pursued.

Lines Follow Cunard and Anchor Companies in Obtaining Writs to Halt Operation of Rule Final Hearing Is Scheduled Tuesday French Owners Threaten to Appeal to Hague if Decision Is Lost Here American shipping interests followed the example of the British yester? day in seeking to test Attorney General Daugherty's Jiquor ruling by obtaining a restraining order. Federal officials may refuse, in consequence, to ? giv? clearance papers to ships seeking to sail with liquor aboard. According to dispatches from Wash? ington, ?Secretary Mellon of the Treasury Department differs with the prohibition authorities as ta the seizure of either foreign or American ships that have liquor aboard, and it is believed there will be no seizures except in case of flagrant violation of the rules, resulting in criminal prosecution. The French government, according to an Associated Press dispatch from Paris, is considering coming to the aid of the French steamship companies in opposing Daugh? erty's ruling. The ruling will be fought in the Supreme Court, and if necessary am appeal taken to the International Court of Justice. The United American liner Resolute reported on docking that its b#r had been closed by radio at sea? ; I. M. M. Leads Fight to Keep U. S. Vessels Wet Court Action invoked in Behalf of the Finland and St. For?/, Both Due to Sail To-morrow The International Mercantile Marine Company joined the Cun'ard and Anchor lines yesterday in challenging the rul? ing of Attorney General Dougherty, effective to-morrow, that no ships may ? enter American waters with liquor I aboard. ' The International Mercantile Marine Company obtained a temporary injunc? tion restraining officials from enforc? ing the order pending a hearing which , is to take place Tuesday. The Finland, of tho Red Star Line, to which, with the St. Paul, of the Ameri? can Line, yesterday's injunction par? ticularly applies, is due to sail from this port to-morrow. It was intimated that the government might retaliate by refusing clearance papers to the Fin? land or any other ship that attempted to leave port with liquor on board. The steamship men, according to P. A. S. Franklin, of tho International Mercantile Marine Company, intend to test the validity of the Attorney Gen? eral's interpretation of the law and carry their case to the Supreme Court of. the United States. Passengers of the United American liner Resolute entered port singing lugubriously "How Dry. I Am," the ship's bar having been closed at sea Tuesday night on orders received from Washington by radio. Granted by Judge Hand The temporary restraining order to protect the American ships Finland and St. Paul was granted by Judge Learned Hand in the United States District Court. It restrains E. C. Stuart, acting Collector of Customs for the Port of New York; Ralph A. Day, Federal Pro? hibition Director for the State of New j York, and John D. Appleby, Prohibi? tion Zone Chief,* from enforcing the Daugherty ruling on either of the ships. They are directed to show cause at 10:30 a. m. Tuesday why the injunc? tion should not be made permanent. Cletus Keating, of Kirlin, Wools?y, Campbell, Hickox & Keating, counsel for the International Mercantile Marine Company, said the only purpose in seeking the injunction was to ob? tain an authoritative ruling on the Daugherty regulation. Once it had been settled how far the Attorney General could go, he said, the steam? ship men would abide strictly by the law. Until then, h? said, they wanted to have enforcement of the latest regulation held up. Mr. Franklin, of the International Mercantile Marine Company, issued the following statement along the same line: "In securing the order of the United States District Court restraining the prohibition enforcement officials *?t New York from seizing liquors on the steamship Finland, of the Red Star Line, and the steamship St. Paul, of j the American Line, we acted for the purpose of protecting our property until the law can be interpreted by the United States Supreme Court. ;At present the scope of the ?aw as applied to ships is debatable. Nobody knows just what it is Wher. the Supreme Court has rendered a decision defining the limits of the Eighteenth Amend? ment and of the Volstead act with re? lation to ships our company as a mat? ter of course will comply strictly with the terms of that decision. AH we ask is an interpretation of the law by the Supreme Court." Action Generally Applauded Steamship men generally, all of whom are agreed that it will eoat them millions of dollars annually to close the bars on their ships and may divert a considerable amount of trans-At? lantic traffic to Canadian ports, hailed the action of the British and American corporations as a move in the defense of all of them. Mr. Appleby, when the restraining ?order was sei ved on him, hinted that there might be a severe retaxt bjr the
